SoWashCo Young Scholars

Nurturing Potential, Sustaining Support

May 2022

Happy May, everyone!

It finally feels like spring outside, and the end of another school year is just around the corner.

With this in mind, May's newsletter will focus on summer resources and opportunities for your Young Scholar.

First though, as we are wrapping up our newsletters for this school year, I'd like to send out a HUGE thank you to families, teachers, and staff for supporting Young Scholar students and working each day to increase access to challenging experiences, build affirmation of what's possible, and be a strong voice of advocacy in the lives of Young Scholar students. You are all amazing.

Have a beautiful summer, and I'll see you in September!

About Me


My name is Colleen Redmond, and I am honored to work as Coordinator for SoWashCo Young Scholars.

I'm a mom, a wife, small business owner, avid biker (the pedal kind), book enthusiast, and beekeeper.

I've been lucky enough to teach in South Washington County Schools for over twenty-five years and have had the incredible opportunity to be a part of the lives of so many students and families over the years.

Now, as part of Young Scholars, I have the honor of working with the amazing staff, students, and families throughout SoWashCo to implement and grow the Young Scholars program.

I am so very excited to work with and support you and your Young Scholar. I can't wait to see where the journey takes us!
